Offering free high-quality downloadable BIM objects, both proprietary and generic, since its launch in 2012 the award-winning NBS National BIM Library has become an essential source of digital information. Now with over 10,000 objects, recent additions include generic mechanical and electrical objects, and all major building fabric systems are also now covered. Manufacturer proprietary objects in major formats, including Autodesk® Revit®, and integration with NBS Create allow supply chain integration and the inclusion of appropriate materials and technology at the right time.
The NBS National BIM Library allows not only more accurate project modelling, specification, costings and quantities, but also better management of information for future maintenance and sustains BIM throughout the lifetime of the building.
